Liverpool fans have been given fresh hope of securing the signing of Nabil Fekir in January as it has been widely reported that the Frenchman has failed to put pen to paper on a new contract offer from Jean-Michael Aulus, the Lyon president. After the 25-year-old’s most to Anfield fell through at the 11th hour over the summer it would be no surprise to see Jurgen Klopp go back in for him.

Fekir has already shown his class this season and has even given a sneak preview to Liverpool fans of what he can do on English soil. The World Cup winner has bagged himself three goals and two assists in his last four games and he scored the decisive goal as Bruno Genesio’s side came to The Etihad and took a 2-1 win back to France with them in their Champions League opener.
The only issue with signing Fekir in January would be that, much like Philippe Coutinho was for Barcelona last season, the Frenchman would be cup-tied in the Champions League. Klopp will be desperate to win something this season, be it the Premier League or even the Champions League and if he has Fekir readily available in the domestic league then there’s no reason why they can’t kick on and go and get their first ever Premier League title.
